Man killed in hunting accident

Monday, December 12, 2005

MILAN — State police in Rhinebeck are investigating a hunting accident that resulted in the death of 22-year-old man Saturday in the Town of Milan.

State police officials gave no details Sunday about the accident, which took place at around noon.

Last year, there was a total of two fatal hunting injuries statewide, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

In 2001, a Kerhonkson man was killed in a shooting incident while hunting in the Town of Wawarsing.

In 1996, a Rhinebeck man was killed after a man, who was hunting illegally in the Town of Rhinebeck, shot him. The shooter said he mistook the victim for a deer.
